Welcome to Mind Matters Counselling Services. My philosophy is to work together with each client to assist them to achieve their desired goals in a calm, safe and positive way.
The focus of my work is the provision of intensive therapy sessions. I provide a small number of 1 hour appointments to those clients that require short term counselling and therapy.
I specialise in providing intensive somatic trauma, grief and loss therapy and provide individual and group clinical supervision. All my work is developed with you and is a unique program tailored to your individual needs.
I work within trauma and trauma related issues (including addictions, attachment disorders, eating disorders, anxiety, and depression), death, dying, grief, loss, and crisis.
The intensive therapy is commenced with a two hour assessment session (face to face or by Zoom) to determine if the intensive therapy program is right for you. Sessions are run for three – four hours (with breaks). A typical day would commence with a session in the morning, a lunch break and a session in the afternoon. These are run for 2 – 4 consecutive days with the final session providing consolidation and review.
The intensive program offers a depth of healing in the therapy that is similar to what is provided in a retreat – the difference is this is within the normal environment of daily living and can be booked for a single day or multiple days without the commitment to weeks at a time. There are local B&B and Airbnb accommodation available to those that are travelling across town, interstate or overseas.
I work with adolescents (15 years old and up) or adults either individually or group work. I have trained my Alaskan Malamute – Emmie in Animal Assisted Therapy. We work together as a team during assessment and intensive sessions.
I offer individual and group supervision session for a variety of professionals within the helping areas. I can provide these in my rooms in Bacchus Marsh or by Skype or Zoom.
I am passionate about delivering and developing more supervision skills and knowledge and it is a focus in my professional development and practice.
Please call or email me – I am happy to answer your questions without a commitment to an appointment.
I work by appointment only.
